    i still found if i had BP coffee i would be hungry by lunch. if i have a camembert omlette and a cup of coffee with cream it is less overall calories by miles and i can last till 1pm for lunch if i am out and distracted.

      Yeah I think ill do something similar.
      For the first 2 and a bit weeks, it keep me going till late afternoon/dinner some days.
      Odd, but hey, may as well switch it up. I keep getting torn about my losses so far. 2.3 kg in 2 weeks is not bad, but then I think someone of my size should be able to lose more. Then I freak about the numbers, and hate that I have to do this to myself, and not just live. Argh! Stupid lol. Should be studying but I am getting distracted by my children and MDA.

        i've lost 2kg+ in under a week of carnivory which i am finding encouraging. i did once do a cutting diet off T-Nation as i was gonna compete in the south island bodybuilding show in the figure class. i had to take the kids skiing instead so i only did a week. however, i didnt lose any weight that week. the cutting diet was basically 100g meat, 30g something like brie or parmesan or a hardboiled egg and veges per meal. for 3 meals. i have 2 theories here. #1 i was exercising alot more that week as it was during school so i didnt lose weight for some reason. this is based on my last sports injury where i couldnt walk. literally. i lay in bed only hobbling around briefly to get the kids out the door to get the school bus. i drunk maybe 2 cups of coffee a day and had a piece of fruit or maybe the odd piece of meat for about a week and lost about 5kgs. #2 it could be the carnivory. i did do a couple of weeks zero carb about 2 yrs ago to the same result. either way, this is working and is way more fun than a potato hack!

            i dont know about sleep all day. i do the odd liver flush where you dont have any fat that day and i feel so cold and weak all day. potatoes would just be too much i reckon unless they had oodles and oodles of butter with them and then i may as well just eat the butter! plus all potatoes are not equal. a potato is not just a potato. i am sure They did Something to the potato around about 1919 or whenever they bred the red king. i cant prove it but once they got into bigger more mass yielding potatoes, i am sure the starches changed. the flavours definitely did so i really only ever eat maori potatoes from the 19thC and before if i do eat potatoes.

            lunch was yay! party time LOL more CO and a cup of coffee. i so am eyeing up the horse right now. apparently the meat doesnt get tough as they age and she is about 5 weeks out from being drenched. if this keeps going i may have to bail over the back fence with a knife and grab a sheep. i am so looking forward to breakfast tomorrow. dd waking me up at 5am as it is her b'day will not be an issue at all. every cloud has a silver lining!!!

            2.3 kg in 2 weeks is not bad, but then I think someone of my size should be able to lose more. Then I freak about the numbers, and hate that I have to do this to myself, and not just live.
            i missed this bit. typically, i dont lose much. i eat less, i exercise and i cruise along. then suddenly 5kg will drop off and i wont notice. so it may simply be something like this. our bodies all react differently and usually the slower you lose it the better it stays off.

                i only joke about eating the horse. heaven forbid. dd would not be the only person starving to death decoratively with the horse if it came to it. she is a member of the family. i just like to joke with dd about it. i am not against eating horses per se, just not the nice ones.

                sheep are nice fat hoggets. i have paradise duck flappers within reach too and rabbits and pukeko. not to mention cockles and mussels within walking distance to fossick for. or paua to dive for. plus marine mammals but i aint allowed them! i am going to have my pork broth now LOL

                      Feeling hungry a bit today for some reason. So much for a fast.

                        temporarily stuck in for the next half an hour and i had another caffeine related thought. there is a post on the before and after pics of a woman who says her problem was undiagnosed high cortisol. well what does coffee do? when i was cutting, i had fat burners and also my coffee. it is more the taste of coffee i crave, not the rush at all. as in i never drink it as a pick me up to keep me awake ever as it doesnt work. anyways i was getting heart palpitations from too much caffeine and my nose was going red lol when i have had the unnatural fat burners which also have even more caffeine in. same thing. no weight loss, desire to eat from feeling so stressed etc. when i lay in bed and lost loads of weight that time when i was injured, i was getting 2 cups a day if i was lucky. i am now down to 3 cups. not prepared to throw some fat burners in for a few days to test this so it will have to stay a theory. my fat did more go to my middle during this time too which indicates cortisol issues.

                          karengo?
                          Karengo - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia very yummy. i have even made karengo and manuka honey icecream in the past so it is very versatile.

                                i hate broken glass. it goes everywhere. make sure you wear shoes for the next few days.

                                my fat is around my belly button. aesthetically distributed tho and down the sides of the back of my hip bones if that makes sense? stuff all on my ass, legs or arms anymore as i train so much. stuff all on the upper part of my back. i did read somewhere about disproportionate skin folds in certain places indicating issues. i googled and found not much. but supposedly navel skin fold is cortisol and the one on your scapula is thyroid. my only piece of evidence to back up the scapula is a chick i did body comp on when i was studying who had quite bad hair loss and probs with weight loss. she had been tested and had no thyroid issues that showed up but her subscapula skin fold was disproportionately large compared to rest of her skin folds.
